Living As Our Purpose

 

“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny–he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally–you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you. The whole intends to do something through you.”
― Osho

 

Why am I here? What can I contribute that none else can? What is the me-ness of me that I embody and how can I best fulfill that? Osho’s quote reminds me of many others all of which boil down to finding and being who we are. Is this something that takes effort or does it just happen? What part of ourselves do we wish to be? My suspicion is that the more of ourselves we express, the more we have fulfilled our purpose. Tho ultimately I like Richard Bach’s take on it. “Here is a test to find out if your mission on earth is finished, if you’re alive it’s not.” Our lives do have meaning and we all matter. This is one of the concepts that keep me going.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – November 9 2011

“The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy — not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss.”
–Joseph Campbell

To me, what Campbell called ‘following your bliss’ sounds a lot like Crowley’s ‘true will’. Living to the purpose of one’s soul. Can prem mean much more than that? What can be more important than the true expression of one’s very being? Dr Campbell in this quote has given a large signpost to discovering what one’s true will may be. Namaste
